Description
Think of an earth pony, or maybe a unicorn.

That pony now has wings. What happens?

Is this pony the most graceful thing in the sky, or did the preceeding sentence just bring about the untimely end of the universe?

This week's theme is: a pony gains a pair of wings.

-----

You have ONE WEEK to create a song (original, remix, or whatever) in response to the theme.

Oh, These Old Things? General Mumble 7/16/2011 10:45:31pm No.15 - Score: 9
Rush job oh god submit, submit!

Rarity gets wings, because she did get wings and that made it easier.


Scootaloo's Wings Jackle App !2Uqe0sHWIk 7/16/2011 5:35:26pm No.10 - Score: 8
A corny little acoustic piece for sci's weekly contest :D
It's about a non-pegasus pony getting wings!
I was like "Nah" and wrote a little diddy about Scootaloo instead! (Because she's the best CMC)
I hope ya'll like it/can deal with my silly voice and guitar skills.
NOW WITH FRIGGIN' RAIN BECAUSE THE EMOTIONS OH GOG I CAN'T HOLD ALL THESE EMOTIONS.
Lyrics:
So I see that you're still stuck on the ground
Caught down there all warm and safe and sound
I know what it's like to be down there
dreaming of the sky and wind blowin' through your hair
One day you'll be just like her
Talented, strong and fast I'm sure
On that day; know what she'll do
When that day comes she'll notice you
You sigh and say "I'll never be that cool"
"I'll try each day and I'll end up as the fool"
"How can I be just like her with my wings so small"
"I shouldn't be like her I shouldn't try at all..."
Let me tell you what you'll do
You'll prove them wrong I know that's true
You'll make a rainboom and impress her too
Just wait another day Scootaloo
[Shitty Vocal Solo]


Don't Let Me Down DerpyGrooves 7/16/2011 7:58:52pm No.12 - Score: 6
AppleDashy nonsense I put over after drinking a dirty arnold palmer and listening to Rocky Mountain High by John Denver

My head in the clouds, my hooves on the ground,
There’s a rainbow somewhere special, either napping or dashing around,
She said my wings were made of gossamer and morning dew,
How can I hold all these apples, when I’m thinking of you?

Don't let me down, don't let me fall
I can't pull myself together

Rainbow Dash's Super Awesome Flying Lessons sci 7/16/2011 10:56:28pm No.16 - Score: 6
Twilight gained a pair of wing using some spell, but she can't stop appreciating the serenity and beauty of flight.

Luckily Rainbow Dash can help by showing the awesomeness of flight.


Learning To Fly Tarby !GTaRByqUR2 7/11/2011 4:12:07am No.2 - Score: 5
Prog-Rock ballad in 6/8. I think the file uploaded sucks, because it's once again done on Guitar Pro, and I had envisioned using harmonics and feedback as part of the song for both transitions and the solo, but you can't emulate either of those well using the program, so the spaces between the intro and first verse, and the first verse and chorus are almost glitchy...Aw well, bad transitions aside, i LOVE and am genuinely proud of the lead guitar line and the solo


Princess Twilight Sparkle (Get Yo Wings Circuitfried Club Remix) Circuitfry 7/15/2011 12:43:03am No.6 - Score: 5
Lol Piegasus, nice one, zorg. The original is by Silva Hound but I think I really did a good number on it. The final, I think, will have another singer.
~~~
Sparkly T's finally in the breeze with these
brilliant wings with an avant-garde ease, oversees
university as Princess of Knowledge, yeah, cuz knowledge is power
when you're ruling Canterlot college, yeah, the go-know-girl's here in prompt hour.
~~~
Look at these girls, talented, magical, smart enough to rule your world,
good enough to fill your heart with true love and sweet enough to make it start,
so fresh and fly, social to shy, learning for the soul from math to rock and roll,
Integrals to drummer fills to what she learned about friendship in Ponyville.
Study hard, fight, play your cards right and everypony will be on your side.
~~~
You know the girls I love the most
and they can count all the way to books. Let's sing this. Take it, Pon-3.
~~~
It's just gonna take some time
before I see you win at life (maybe it should be "before you go succeed at life")
and it's only just because
you know that I know that
Your yearn to learn is sublime
chargin' up to hit your stride
and it's cool with us because
I know that you know that.

Jedidiah Pie Takes Flight Senator Myth 7/16/2011 5:33:31pm No.9 - Score: 3
Pinkie's dad spends his days slaving away on a rock farm. But a lilting birdsong lulls him into a daydream about growing wings and flying away. After his brief break, he returns to his work, feeling even worse off than before.


Filly's First Flight Chain Algorithm 7/16/2011 10:41:45pm No.14 - Score: 3


La Chute D'Mare Dr Dissonance 7/13/2011 10:33:23am No.3 - Score: 2
I decided to tell the story of Icarus...not quite pony related, but the MLP theme is in there a number of times, so I guess that counts...
So basically, a pony goes up and flies! Then plays about up in the clouds! But he/she flies too high! His/her wings are burnt and he/she falls to his/her....well, I think you can guess...
Title is a painful pun on "La Chute D'Icare" by Brian Ferneyhough...although there is no resemblance between this piece and his!
Also, unsure about this piece, I feel that there's too much going on in the main section that it makes it difficult to concentrate...but oh well, enjoy!


Derpy Hooves Has 8 Wings - The tragic sonata of a mailmare turned abomination! Overkillius 7/16/2011 5:45:00pm No.11 - Score: 2
A new day dawns as Princess Celestia (yes the very one that trolls my little remix) raises the sun. We are brought to the life of Derpy, a more than simple mailmare who thinks she is an earth pony. Defying all logic and reason, Derpy grows three extra pairs of wings. She doesn't quite realize until then that she has been a pegasus pony all along and realizes the horror that she has been transformed into. Derpy then contemplates life and how her very image defies it (this is the flimsy part of the song). Derpy is set on taking her own life until twilight sparkle comes in and saves the day. Now Derpy is happy again. Flutter yay.

A lot of work went into this piece compared to some of the other stuff I do. That said I am not too proud how it turned out. I am sure though that you ponies are all going to be supportive and giving good criticisms, and for that I thank you all. I Can't wait to hear everypony elses at the sync listen (which I may be a little late to >.>)

This piece though... is flimsy at times and I just wanted to call it done... better learning comes from mistakes than trying not to make them.

Took half an hour and a new composition program. It's also only 26 measures long. Suck it, it's my first competition and my second attempt at composing without just chillin' at a piano for hours. :P


Dash's afraid of Pinkie Piegasus zorg 7/14/2011 9:32:19pm No.4 - Score: 1
